Happy for you! That sounds great, as does 50% of sales (in addition to being paid to shoot).

They just gave me a list. It's huge! Everything from posed shots on and off stage to tour buses, musical equipment with logos, feet walking onto stage, guys walking off bus, unusual artictic stuff, redos of old shots, tickets, roadies....This they tell me AFTER we come up with numbers, lol.

welcome to the real world ;-)

So happy for you, landing the much-coveted role of band photog! You already know what to do, all you need to do now is do it. And make sure your gear is in good shape, batteries charged etc.

That is awesome! I hope you will post some of your pictures. Congrats. Just do what is recommended to people with stage fright, pretend the audience is naked!

Just got home from two night at the Ritz with "the boys" :D They all call me Badass. Robert Lamm gestured me up onto his riser where he was playing the keyboards so i could shoot the others with the crowd in the background, then the roadies gesture me to do the same on Lou Pardini's riser. I was so sure I was going to knock someone or something over, but I didn't. YAY! SO many stories to tell, but I'm sore, it's late, and I have 4000 photos to upload and some whiskey to drink first. These guys are just priceless!

Ain't that just awesome? :-)

I'm still culling and haven't even touched anything with Ps yet, but I love this pic of Lee entering stage right. Lots more later... :)

1/40 sec at 70mm is too slow in my opinion.

Welp, I got a call not too long ago. Chicago wants me back after a really bad experience with a photographer who was working for them for free.

According to my contact, the original members asked for me by name and I was able to ask for and get 3 times what I asked for last time. She also told me they were considering having it be a regular monthly thing for however much longer they stay out on the road (going on 52 years not, I think, lol).

So anyway, they have 3 new members and one guy that moving from percussion to drums, so I have 4 individual staged shoots before the show even starts.

I'm so excited and feeling more than a little validated. I think that's the word.

In other news, I'm still living in German Village, Columbus, OH, the local magazine has dubbed me the "resident photographer", and they have given me a full page pet feature for my now adventures in dog photography.

For those of you that know me, this is the first time since I quit my 9-5 that I've reached my income goal and I've already exceeded it in bookings for next month! So... I think I can officially consider my decision to quit a good decision... I am thoroughly enjoying my current situation!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pics coming... I need to re-figure out how to do it here. It's been a while...

Hey Cynthia - I was on a two year hiatus when this thread came out and I started reading from the beginning as if it was new, then saw these most recent posts. Congratulations on all that you've accomplished in the past few years! I'm really stoked for you. You're kicking ass out there and an inspiration to many. Keep on!

It's as if we are on the stage with them.
Congratulations on your well-deserved success.

Wow! If that's what you're giving them... they need to pay you more than three times what you were getting!

Those are fabulous! Well done! I'm so excited for you!
